  • Research and Innovative Services (OSU Libraries) Investigation Report [2010-01]. The purpose of this project report is to provide Associate University Librarian (AUL) Jennifer Nutefall and the newly formed Assessment Project Team with a baseline of information about the current state of data gathering within OSU Libraries (OSUL). In March 2010, we conducted a series of short interviews with library department heads and Kerrie Cook, Executive Assistant to the University Librarian asking how data is collected, handled and stored and when it is used to report statistics. This expanded to include follow-up with some unit heads as we found we needed clarification or were presented with a new data collecting resource. Comments gathered in the course of our interviews are presented in the Observations section with the caveat that the lens is our own. Possible follow-up activities that arose from our interviews are reported for the consideration of the Assessment Project Team and/or Research and Innovative Services (RIS). Summaries are provided for each department contacted. These are in alphabetic order and include information on data collected, statistics reported, and preservation/retrieval options. Our intent is to describe the whole using the sum of its parts.
